Crowns, Implant Crowns and Bridges are durable restorative solutions
A traditional crown is a restorative dental solution to help you save a tooth that has been badly damaged by decay or trauma. These crowns are sometimes used together with bridges to replace missing teeth.
Crowns will typically be placed following a root canal, dental implant or the filling of a large cavity. Crowns are also used cosmetically, to improve the appearance of teeth, and in conjunction with bridges to fill in gaps in your smile.
A traditional dental crown is supported by a natural tooth’s root structure, while a dental implant crown is supported by a root replacement that was done by a dental implant procedure. While the tooth-root replacement can last a lifetime the crown that is placed on it doesn’t. The implant crown is the only part you see in the mouth and they may need to be replaced or repaired over time.
Using only the highest-quality, state-of-the-art materials, Dr. Everett and Dr. Greene place crowns, implant crowns and bridges to improve the function and appearance of our patients’ teeth.
Our crowns, made with high-tech dental porcelain, are indistinguishable from the rest of your natural teeth. You will be able to bite and chew with them the same as your other teeth, and they require no special care.
Bridges are a solution we use to replace missing teeth. With bridges, a prosthetic porcelain tooth, or set of teeth, will be anchored to two surrounding teeth using crowns, and then cemented into place. As with crowns, bridges look and function just like the rest of your teeth.
